    Goong back to beale, when we signed him i was so annoyed, clearly just a gap-fill player and just hung around in the squad, never once taking the game by the scruff of the neck let alone doing anything of note. Highly overrated and living off the past/rep once gained.
    Ayshord floats around in between these guys somewhere, for those that want to discuss another

    Is it mate?
    Or I just dont have a weird vendetta against someone who played 170 first grade NRL games, which clearly means they are a decent player.

    He is right this time. Spuds don't play 170 NRL games.

    +1......but might I add, it's a pointless argument (even for the off-season) because both sides are looking at it from completely different angles.

    On another note (and I'm aware it was only brought up as a bit of trolling and shit-stirring) but in terms of the earlier talk about the WCC being bad for the Broncos performances, I'm not buying it.

    The season is undoubtedly too long but that is largely around the grind of training and all the boring shit for so long.
    A pre-season tour is a great way to start the year and our performances tend to indicate the same.
    In fact we probably should do one mid year also.

    ah thats nice u think im always right mate, but far from it, ive been wrong at least once.

    The funny thing is, I think Pomeroy was rubbish at an NRL level too! Deadset one of the worst NRL players I have ever seen.

    There's no such thing as a pointless arguement in the off season. What else are we going to do?

    I agree. I would like to see even up to 10 rounds cut from the regular season.
    Its far too long and having less club games makes the ones we do get seem more valuable IMO.

    I wouldnt mind a tourny every couple of years, where a handful of NRL teams go over there to england or they come here and they have a legit tournament. Not just 3 games. Would be a bit more exciting than what we currently get IMO, and offers NRL clubs a chance to essentially play heated meaningful trials against SL teams.

    I am always right mate so I can say as much contradictory stuff and both of the comments are correct.
    lol

    Nah it falls in line with the original argument - average NRL player but still a very very good rugby league player.

    Fair enough, I could be inclined to agree with that. Funnily, that was what my whole argument that kicked this debacle off was about but obvs as either Krump or yourself said, I needed to elaborate on my wording a little.

    Jersey Range for next yer has supposedly been leaked:



    If those are the designs, none reach the lofty heights of the '15 heritage jersey, but most of them look pretty slick, i'm laughing at us bringing the aqua back for the nines though. It might be that the pic quality is a bit shit but the anzac jersey look like it has a camouflage pattern and i was always a fan of the diamond jerseys.

    I actually like the 9s jersey. White piping on the home jersey is too thick.

    I get so pissed off by all these shitty jerseys teams keep wearing.

    When you go back to watch highlight clips of previous seasons it takes you ages just to work out which 2 teams are playing sometimes

    There's good heritage and then there's heritage you wish you could forget.

    This year's heritage falls into the latter.
